The Marine Conservation Ecology & Management (MCEM) group is composed of an interdisciplinary team of ecologists and environmental economists led by Associate Professor Katrina Davis. Our research assesses optimal use of natural resources to maximise the productivity of ecological and social systems. Our work combines bio-economic and demographic modelling, non-market valuation and optimisation approaches. Current projects include resolution of marine human-wildlife conflict, assessing marine use and non-use values, spatial marine management, and theoretical work exploring how to treat choice-consistency in discrete choice experiment analysis.
